Praise and Coffee Night

Tonight we had our first Praise and Coffee night here in our area. These were started by Sue of Praise and Coffee and are currently happening in a few states.
Some of us are bloggers, others are Christians who wanted to spend some time in fellowship with others. We had a great time!
.
We started the evening just talking and getting to know each other.
.


Kim, of Scattered Stones arranged this night and led us in a short devotional time on Hebrews 10. She talked about the importance of gathering together to build each other up and hold each other accountable.
.
After a time of worship and prayer, a name was drawn for the door prize. My friend Nancy (In my Neck of the Woods) was the winner of some coffee, a devotional book and a journal.
.
Here is the whole group.
.


As our evening ended, we were blessed with this beautiful sunset.
It was a wonderful night, a great time to be refreshed with worship and time spent with friends.
Thanks, Kim for all you put into this!

I would absolutely love to be apart of a group like that. Maybe I'll just have to start one of my own. Are there any guidelines to follow? Is this something that's being started all over?

How wonderful, and what a great turn out! I'd love to attend, but unfortunately that several hour drive is a bit too long. Keep up those great times of fellowship and learning, it does a body good!
